    NJ law defined?

    I was just reading Handgunlaw.us and confused myself. This is what it said:
    "Large Capacity Feeding Devices:
    New Jersey prohibits the manufacture, transport, shipment, sale or disposal of large capacity ammunition
    magazines, unless the magazine is intended to be used for authorized military or law enforcement purposes.
    N.J. Rev. Stat § 2C:39-9h. New Jersey law defines “large capacity ammunition magazine” as a box, drum,
    tube or other container which is capable of holding more than 15 rounds of ammunition to be fed
    continuously and directly into a semi-automatic firearm. Section 2C:39-1y."
    So the question is, if you have a 15 round mag and 1 in the chamber, is that illeagal?

    No you are not illegal, because the magazine still falls within the legal definition. Here in NY, the limit is a 10-round magazine, but it's perfectly OK to have a full mag and one in the hole. I routinely carry 10+1, and it is fully legal.

    Discalimer: You may wish to verify this with a NJ attorney, but I don't see any problem with 15+1, according to the way it's written.

    You're OK with a 15 round magazine, the only problem is if it's got HP's in it
